Russell Westbrook finished with 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists for his 100th career triple-double in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 119-107 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night. 

The only other players in NBA history with at least 100 triple-doubles are Oscar Robertson (181), Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107). 

Westbrook has now registered triple-doubles in three straight games and leads all players with 21 this season. LeBron James ranks second with 14 following his triple-double Tuesday versus the Phoenix Suns. 

James also ranks second among all active players with 69 triple-doubles—31 shy of the reigning MVP’s illustrious mark. 

Winners of four straight, the Thunder are currently the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference at 41-29 overall. That leaves them 1.5 games back of the Portland Trail Blazers for the No. 3 seed but just two games clear of the No. 8-seeded San Antonio Spurs.
